KIA ORA & Welcome to BYOD at Te Kura Tuarua o Te Kamo.

Students are encouraged to bring a personal computing device to support their digital learning at KHS. Students may bring either a MacBook, Windows laptop, iPad with a keyboard or a Chromebook. A Chromebook with 4GB Ram is the recommended device.

Passwords for BYOD devices:

Students can request to join their laptop, iPad with a keyboard or chromebook to the KHS BYOD WIFI by using the BYOD WIFI CODES link on the Student Intranet. The KHS BYOD WIFI is for student laptops only & no student smart phones are to be connected to the KHS BYOD WIFI.

VPNs: must be removed from students KHS accounts on the BYOD Wifi network or their logins will be automatically disabled.

Student BYOD Care and Security: (some tips to help you keep your device from being damaged and your accounts & data safe)

  • Portable devices should be protected by a username and password. This should not be disclosed to other students.

  • Always store the laptops in a protective bag. Do not store anything else inside the laptop bag. (Chargers, papers)

  • Avoid storing your laptop at the bottom of your school bag – pressure from books can damage the screen and hinges.

  • Carry your laptop within its protective cover inside your normal school bag. Do not overfill your school bag. (Pressure on the laptop can cause permanent damage to the screen and other components)

  • Never lift the laptop by the screen. This will stress the hinge mechanism, which also carries the data and power supply to the screen.

  • Never leave your laptop in unsupervised areas during the school day.

  • Ensure that the virus and malware protection on portable devices is kept up to date.

  • Saving and Backup – Students are responsible for their own backup of critical data at all times. This may be through a USB drive, SD card, external drive, or cloud-based solution. Students have access to Google Drive via their school account with unlimited storage.

"Security and upkeep of a student-owned device is the responsibility of the student. The owner of the device is responsible for insurance coverage.

Te Kura Tuarua o Te Kamo is not liable for any damage or theft for student owned devices".
